Game notes: The Red Wings are 4-5-1 in their past 10 games, including a 3-2 victory over San Jose at home Tuesday. The Canadiens are 5-5 in their past 10. Big Ten hockey alumnus Cole Caufield (Wisconsin) leads Montreal with 26 goals among 36 points, though he won't be playing, as shoulder surgery shut him down for the season last week. Among the active Habs, look out for captain Nick Suzuki, who has 16 goals and 22 assists. Dylan Larkin, the Wings' captain and a Michigan alumnus, and Lucas Raymond both have 15 goals for the Wings. The Red Wings visit the New York Islanders on Friday for their final pre-All-Star break game.
